Safer at Home Mesa County

Safer at Home Mesa County will happen gradually.

You are being asked to stay home as much as possible while allowing certain activities to resume with physical distancing measures in place.

Heightened disease monitoring continues to ensure adequate capacity in health care settings is maintained and to and prevent outbreaks in high-risk settings. If increased disease transmission begins to occur, immediate action will be taken to protect our community and healthcare resources.

A variance to the statewide safer at home plan was approved by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Mesa County’s variance allows continued reopening a limited capacity, with social distancing precautions in place.  This is complementary to State Public Health Order 20-28, Executive Order D 2020 079 and should not be relied on solely.

Phase 2: Submit Your Plan

A new public health order in Mesa County outlines the next steps for our reopening.
This phase expands upon the current guidelines to allow:
     • Up to 50% capacity not to exceed more than 175 people in a confined indoor space for critical and noncritical businesses, including houses of worship.
     • Gatherings to expand to 50 people.
The order includes a requirement that operational plans be submitted to Mesa County Public Health.
